    Flounder gigging trips offer a unique experience and are great for kids or avid outdoorsmen. You will be gigging off of a custom-built 18’ Boatright powered by a Suzuki four-stroke outboard engine. The crew targets Flounder year-round but you can also expect to see Crab, Stingray, Sheepshead, Drum, as well as many other species. A couple of great things about Flounder gigging are that it is easy to learn and you beat the heat during the dog days of summer. Contact Capt. Kody to schedule your trip.
